I prefer the first one, because the second pathname raises the problem
of creating a new subdirectory. However, i think we should keep the
word 'policy' in the file name to avoid users believe that is a
configuration file.

Once we define the new pathname, i will also create a patch for
the IMA module in dracut to make sure things work also for
distributions that do not have Systemd installed.
